Re: “Return to the Sun

For the Record, Open Dress on Friday (tonight!) also begins at 7:30, like the regular shows! Sorry about the mix-up!

Re: “Life on the Edge

The Weekly needs to start putting links to the websites of boutiques and hangouts in these articles the way the Chow page does with restaurants.

Re: “Fantastic Figures

The Kasser family exhibit is probably fine, and I am looking forward to seeing it, but it is not a major show by any means as implied in the review. It is being seen in Tucson and Tulsa not exactly major stops on the art show circuit. To say "not to be outdone," and compare the MOMA and the TMA is to engage in hallucinations. Just say it is a good show and is worth seeing.

Re: “The Fall Arts Preview

It is revealing that you describe the concertmaster of the Tucson Symphony orchestra has a "guest violinist"

Re: “Marvelous Miz

Excellent production... Have seen performances of Les Miserables in Phoenix, Chicago (twice), New York, and ...Madrid, in Spanish.
Kudos to AO for putting this ensemble together, they and the cast are a credit to Tucson and our arts scene. AO is also to be commented for the community out reach that they do, especially noted, the complementary and free tickets they give to expand their future audience. Mr. Aguirre does have a bass voice as noted, a true baritone would have probably been more what is generally called for in this role. However, he did an admiral rendition, dramatic, forceful, colored, convincing. Would love to see him in a traditional bass role.
Unfortunate, the production run was short, the performance was SOLD OUT, I understand contractual and production cost limitations, ...but, it could have easily run TWICE as long.

Re: “Marvelous Miz

"Many think this story is about the French Revolution, but it concerns a much smaller—and less successful—effort years before."
Actually, the French Revolution was 1789, the Paris Rebellion, that is referenced in Les Miz, actually happened after the revolution in 1832.
And Juan Aguirre as Javert is a bass (lower and more ominous than a baritone).
But never mind about all that, go see this amazing production!
Anyone who has enjoyed Tucson theater over the years will be more than inspired.

Re: “Disappearing Galleries

Galleries have been disappearing for a number of years and not just downtown. TOO many to list, sadly. It's not a surprise, when it comes to art we love to look but we rarely buy, the economy just sucks.

Re: “Disappearing Galleries

Yes, correct. It was the so-called "art galleries" that was holding the block down.

Re: “Open Doors

Everyone should visit the awesome artists' studios at The Monterey Court Studio Galleries conveniently located on Tucson's historic Miracle Mile.

Re: “Waiting for Something

Bridging the gap between the sensibilities of a Tucson audience and the portrayal of real life drama happening only a few miles to our south through theater, is a supremely daunting task. These plays make an heroic attempt to widen our view. I am very proud of our efforts. These plays , I believe, motivate an audience to know and understand more. - Jim Klingenfus, Sound Designer.

Re: “Rosemont, So Much to Answer For

There is a reason most residents in the Sonoita/Patagonia area are against this mine. You will find "Save the Santa Rita's" bumper stickers on members of the Tree of Life from Patagonia to ranchers in Sonoita. Opposition to this mine crosses the entire political spectrum. I even remember the 2010 Congressional Libertarian Candidate David Stokes being against the mine.

There are many reasons to be against this mine. Environmentally, it is going to use more water per month than Tucson uses all year. Which water in this desert is a limited resource. This will reduce the water supply for cattle ranches, farms, wineries, and orchards. Which we need copper, but we need food a lot more. Economically, the jobs created will be only a few hundred and there is no guarantee Rosemont will hire locally. There is the public safety issue of having hundreds of trucks driving up and down St. Route 83. Which is already a dangerous road to travel. This will also cause the road to deteriorate faster than normal. Rosemont does not have to pay any more taxes to compensate for this extra cost.

On a patriotic standpoint, Rosemont Copper is owned by a Canadian mining company where their biggest client for copper are Chinese companies. So, we are basically going to allow a foreign company to sell OUR resources to a Communist country. If we are going to destroy a fragile ecosystem, drain our already limited water supply, damage the economies of Patagonia/Sonoita, and leave a huge open pit filled with toxic water; can we at least keep the resource in this country?

I really can not see any logical argument for this mine. You do not need to be a left leaning tree hugger to see this mine will be a net loss to our community.

There are no jobs on a dead planet....

Re: “Rosemont, So Much to Answer For

Sorry, never thought Tucson was solely a tourism economy. I'm talking about the Santa Ritas, Madera Canyon, Sonoita, and the Coronado National Forest which is mandated for multiple use - if the Rosemont Mine goes ahead, there will only be one use as no cow can graze and no person would want to hike it.

If the Rosemont Copper deposit was found in 1961, why hasn't it been extracted yet ? My guess would be it was not economically or environmentally viable, still isn't. And again greed is being put before our environment that can't be fixed when chemicals are introduced that degrade our water. Water. Where are you going to truck that in from? 2000 jobs? Not all those jobs will exist and even fewer will be for 20 years. Numbers exaggerated, like the jobs the Keystone XL Pipeline is suppose to bring to Nebraska - bogus exaggeration, corporate and political rhetoric. Both proposed projects by foreign companies for their economic gain, both won't bring much beyond potential for environmental catastrophe for local citizens.

Re: “Rosemont, So Much to Answer For

Twenty years is a temporary job? How many jobs do you know of that will last twenty years? There are alot of Arizonans, who love to have one of the several thousand direct or indirect jobs that will result from this project.

Re: “Rosemont, So Much to Answer For

20 years of work for a big ugly hole in the ground doesnt make sense to me. The Resolution Mine might make sense given the proximity to nearby open pits further north even though I believe itll use the cave block method. But just because the Rosemont site is in an active mining district doesnt make it the best decision for the city or Southern AZ. I think it would be short sighted to approve the mine for the quick and ultimately temporary boost in jobs when the long term impacts are weighed. The payback period is just too short.
